Celebrating painters in Britain who found new ways of depicting people, places, feelings and relationships, All Too Human features London-based artists from the second half of the 20th century including Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon. It also brings together rarely seen works by their contemporaries, including Michael Andrews, Frank Auerbach, R.B. Kitaj, Leon Kossoff, Paula Rego and F.N. Souza. Despite differences in approach and style, these artists remained loyal to the intimate representation of human figures and their surroundings.
